I created this VECTOR. I did not create this idea and especially this concept. This year Hello Kitty became really popular again with their “Small Gift” anniversary near the end of last year and the obscene amount of collabs that you can see HK on now. At “Small Gift” there were a small series of over 50 characters all done in the shape and look of Hello Kitty or Sanrio characters. This was still during the skrillex rise so while he wasn’t a figure in the collection there were too many to name that were including Daft Punk, Kanye West, Deadmau5 and Lady Gaga.
Back in May when I created this Skrillex face, I had only seen it via Skrillex’s twitter, in a picture, he had retweeted, In which someone had illustrated the idea, poorly, with a pencil. After quickly searching for the image, I found nothing . So I decided to make my own.
Since then, I have found many copies and other originals based around the same idea. Its a very simple concept especially given the base of another idea. I have since been asked to print shirts and to do more with the image but first off, its not the only one of its kind. There are many more people who have done the same thing as me. Secondly, I don’t like profiting off of others names. This image belongs to me but the name and personality selling the image do not.
Some better than others, obviously, and even this one above with the same hair/different bow but it doesn’t matter. I created my vector for fun. That’s it. I still have some Skrillex Hellokitty stickers and will hand them out/put them in orders in the future but I will never make profit off this symbol. I just don’t believe in it. If you would like a shirt with a similar design on it, Im sure there is a knock off online store selling them with Skrillex’s logo attached for like $12. haha
